No, this isn't arepeat review of last month's exploration game: offering from Romantic Robot but a version of the arcade game Centipede starring even more creepy crawlies and garden honors. It's a grand old shoot-em-up which offers plenty of fast action and difficulty

The essence of the game is that a caterpillar appears at the top of the screen while at the bottom is your base which you use to blast away the segments of the caterpillar . That's all you have to do - but there are lots of other pesky little insects about who have some nasty tricks up their antennae.

The screen is dotted with mushrooms  which serve several purposes but mostly just get in your way. The caterpillar will bounce off them as it moves down the screen line by line, sometimes charging quickiy down a tunnel of them, at others getting temporarily trapped in small box. Four shots from the gun will destroy a mushroom but there are ways of creating more

Flies will descend in a vertical line leav-ing mashrooms behind them and destroying ?one of the three bases if they hit you. They can be shot on the way down but it is hazardous to hang about underneath them. A t the end of a wave partially-destroyed mushrooms will also recreate themselves but you score more points for each section reformed.

trapped in small box. Four shots from the gun will destroy a mushroom but there are ways of creating more flies will descend in a vertical line leav-ing mashrooms behind them and destroying ?one of the three bases if they hit you. They can be shot on the way down but it is hazardous to hang about underneath them. A t the end of a wave partially-destroyed mushrooms will also recreate themselves but you score more points for each section reformed.

With the beginning at each new wave a snail appears and slides relatively slowly across screen. He can be shot for a big bonus but more importantly needs to be shot quickly This is because when he passes over a mushroom it takes on magical powers so that : if a 'caterpillar segment hits it it will dive down the screen towards you - making life very difficult indeed. The magic mushrooms can be shot to neutralise them but when you've got a whole row to neutralise it can be tough to get them all.

The most dangerous insect isihe spider that appears at the bottom of the screen. He bounces up and down like a demerged kangaroo trying to Kind on you. With a fast one? it is particularly difficult to take evasive action. They can be shot by nipping underneath them but this is a dangerous pastime and it's best just to try to avoid them.

If caterpillar segments reach the  bottom of the screen you still have a chance since the base can move up and down between two lines to avoid the shutting segments; Every time you do succeed in hitting a segment it leaves another mushroom though. If you succeed m getting past 10 caterpillars (extremely difficult) then a bonus screen appears where you ca, play a game of Snake Here you control the carterpillar as he picks up from that  makes his body longer.

The action is terrifically demanding and fast leaving no room for error. The graphics and sound effects are reasonable blout don't expect to get anything more out of this game than a few hours of heavy and satisfying blasting

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
